Gagnon's follow-up to The Tunnels
firmly establishes her as an author to watch. This is another fast-paced and well-plotted chiller. Kelly Jones is one
of the more interesting characters to emerge from suspense fiction in recent years, and readers will look forward
to her further exploits.

When skeletal remains are found on the Appalachian Trail, FBI agent Kelly Jones is forced to postpone her first vacation in years -- and when more bodies turn up, it's clear she's not getting away anytime soon. The multi-jurisdiction case is a nightmare in more ways than one. The victims are young gay men, most of them transient, and there are a lot of them. Some are long dead, others more recent kills. Only one thing's certain: There's a devious killer at work. There may be a copycat too. Local law enforcement isn't much help, even before Jake Riley rolls into town, providing yet another distraction for Kelly. (MIRA, Jul., 384 pp., $6.99)
